While the discussion around 5G is undoubtedly mounting, operators remain elusive about the timeline for deployment. But that does not mean progress is not being made, with several leading operators turning to Massive MIMO to upgrades their networks. What is Massive MIMO? As a Space Division Multiple Access (SDMA) technology, Massive MIMO has an ultra-large-scale multi-antenna system at its core where each module integrates 64 or above RF channels and built-in antennas. It features the maximum specification and highest integration levels in the industry, supports all mainstream LTE TDD frequency bands and is compatible with all existing 4G terminals…
